Prem Jacob wants to become a singer but is forced to pretend as a Brahmin to get a home for rent. There he meet Hema. Hema drew a picture of a rose on his shirt and gives him sweets. She gave him a note, writing Mandan (fool) as he does not notice her love. Prem gets angry and meets Hema in a park and angrily kisses her. Hema gets angry and says that she will tell her relatives. Prem becomes afraid and begs her forgiveness and said that he is ready for any punishment. Hema kisses his hands and they hug revealing their love.

Later Prem tells Hema that he is a Christian but she does not care. Prem gets a chance as a playback singer. Hema is being forced to marry Murali. Prem wins the national award for his song and when he sings in a program, Hema emotionally hugs him. Murali becomes angry and hurts Hema. Her relatives call off the wedding and agree that Prem and Hema can marry.
